Kaley Chu

Book Kaley Chu for speaking engagements & events.

Kaley Chu is an author, speaker, people connector and Business Development Manager at Equi Wealth. In 2018, Kaley turned lunch into a life changing experience. Not just one lunch, but 100 of them. With strangers, over a year!

She is the author of the brand new book, ‘100 Lunches with Strangers’. Since publishing the book, Kaley has been featured in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald and been interviewed by radio stations across the country. She is now sharing her journey and the lessons distilled from those 100 Lunches with the rest of the world.

Don’t be scared of the word stranger.

Described as one of the freshest new faces on the motivational speaking circuit, Kaley has polled higher in post-session feedback than most seasoned speakers. According to Michael Russell, MD at MoneyQuest, ‘Kaley’s keynote and the book should be mandatory for anyone employed in a job that has a sales component. There has never been a more unique prospecting initiative and how when it’s done right, it can transform you and the potential of your business.’

Kaley is a thought leader with a down-to-earth, everyday manner. Her inspirational story has the power to cut through corporate hype and encourage immediate, life-changing action.

Her story has not only inspired many to get out of their comfort zone, but it has also motivated entrepreneurs, franchisees and seasoned sales professionals to re-examine their business networking and connection strategies.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Kaley came to Australia to pursue an education and other opportunities in 2007. However, with all her friends and family more than 7,500km away, her
confidence was smashed; she became reserved, timid and shy. 

In 2018, as a direct result of her shyness, she found herself in an extremely embarrassing and humiliating situation. She knew something had to change.

Kaley committed herself to a new and exciting challenge: to have lunch with 100 strangers and overcome her shyness. When she finished her challenge, she realised that not only
had her confidence grown enormously, this experience had completely transformed every single aspect of her life.

She has since written and published a book about the journey and she is now speaking all over Australia to motivate others to step out of their comfort zone, connect with people, and live a more fulfilled life.

“I am sharing this journey with you in the hope it will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone, change your destiny and unleash your hidden potential. Do something unexpected, step into your power and impact others positively. Meet people from different backgrounds.

The Keynote Speech In her authentic style, Kaley is able to deliver a high-energy message with passion and humour.

Thanks Kaley for delivering such an incredible keynote presentation at our Conference. Not surprisingly it scored the highest rating from our members. Your story is testament that we really can change our destiny. Yes, you need to be incredibly courageous and yes you also need to be very committed to sticking to a plan, but you have shown that we can all do it! Your keynote and book should be mandatory reading for all school-leavers to better prepare them for all that life can offer PLUS anyone employed in a job that has a sales component. There has never been a more unique prospecting initiative and how when it’s done right, it can transform you and the potential of your business.
